I agree with Scottie and Ron, you won't be able to please everyone in trying to set the perfect date so everyone can be there. I know of the issues you are going through with getting this on it's own this year, but more advanced notice next year would allow others to set their schedule and they can choose around that with Sam's Club locals. There's 5 close locals to choose from. I believe it should stay on the weekend of July 4th. Moving it to August would not work for me.
